Hi MT, that's a scratch built 1/15th scale model that my late dad built in 1964 based on a full sized boat that he had bought at the end of the war.
The model is 53 inches long,
And weighing in at 13.2kilos dry weight without blast or batteries, I named her MV CAROLINE after my wife when I inherited it in 2008 and refurbished her as it had been damaged and lost the aft cabin while in storage. As I hadn't any pictures of the original I decided to use an open aft deck.
The boat it was based on was built in the 30s was a comfortable 6 berth, 2 double cabins forward, large lounge midships with small bathroom and kitchen. The aft cabin was the master with ensuite shower room.
I can't remember what size engine, but it was a big diesel driving a hydraulic gearbox and had a top speed of 15 knots.
As kids me and my 4 sisters spent many happy holidays aboard cruising the East Coast mainly, but each year we would go down to the south coast for the big boat show.
Sorry for waffling on but I loved that old boat.
